117th Congress Freshman Guide

The weeks after an election are always hard on public affairs and government relations professionals. While the votes are counted and the airwaves are free of ads, the real work begins: meeting dozens of new Congress members and explaining your position on issues.

To help make your job easier, we created this Freshman Guide. Based on data from GovPredict, now a Phone2Action company, we pulled together useful information such as where each member was educated, how they built their career and which offices they have held before they traveled to Capitol Hill. Together with their interests and other insights, you have a full profile of members of the freshman class.

The 117th Congress will wade through some of the toughest legislation to be considered in years, from COVID relief to immigartion. We hope this guide will help you build relationships and shape policy decisions.
